When I look at some of the negative reviews of Newhotel Candide, I think perhaps they are writing about a different place. I've come here 5 times in the last 6 years and have found it just what I need. First the staff: The director, Mr. Barouti, seems to be the kind of general who knows where every canon is or isn't. He is on top of the details, and in the years I have been here there have been a number of improvements. For one thing, the wifi. When I first came here, you bought it at about 70 euros a week from a 3rd party vendor. Last year it was free but operated mainly on the ground floor. This year ( I am here now for a 2 week stay) it works in all the rooms and well. The reception staff are on their toes and very helpful. The cleaning staff have mostly been here for a number of years and are very thorough. The rooms have always been clean. That is true of the corridors too. European hotel rooms tend to be small. I have often been in rooms that are often for 2. They are much bigger than other rooms I have stayed in in Paris. They would be quite adequate for 2 people, understanding you don't spend a lot of time in your room. Every room has a good television and a working fridge. the fridge is important for me because I often go to concerts or theatre in the evening and just want a snack before or after. The breakfast is ample: cereal, fruit, yogurt, coffee, tea, fresh cold cuts, juice, often eggs, and plenteous rolls, butter, cheese, croissants. As an old French girl friend of mind was wont to say: All what you want. I usually come for 2 weeks or so in January or early February. The prices compare very well with other 3 star places I have looked at. I don't think you can beat this place. I probably wouldn't come in the summer, because like many Paris hotels, it isn't airconditioned and I would have trouble breathing. But I am not a fan of summer anyway. This is a great hotel in Paris and the neighborhood is alive and full of convenience Peter B
